The British gas supplier Calor supplies customers in central London with the fully electric Fuso eCanter. Calor uses the locally emission-free light truck to transport butane and propane cylinders in London’s strictest environmental zone in the city centre (Ultra Low Emission Zone, ULEZ).
Daimler states an effective range of around 100 kilometres per battery charge for the eCanter. The 7.5-tonne truck used by Calor covers around 50 kilometres in regular daily operation. Therefore, charging can take place overnight at the depot.
16 FUSO eCanters from the small-series production of Daimler Trucks in Tramagal, Portugal, have so far been delivered to customers in Great Britain. In the United States, Europe and Japan, more than 150 vehicles are in use in several major cities.
